Skating Blacksmith Now Headmaster 
of Wrought Iron School 







The Smithy Is Set in Grass and Flowers 



(Drawings by K. A. Tnvnalna* 



HE'S a skating: blacksmith from 
Norway and now, in his grand- 
father days, he lives by the side 
of Route 126 in Carlisle and 
gives lessons in wrought iron to man — 
and on© woman. For a blacksmith Mr. 
Jngvald L. Otterson -has almost an air of 
frailty. Of good height, he is quite 
Slender, his manner is mild and gentle, 
and his well-shaped hands have always 
been, rather to his wonderment, quite 
timcalloused through all the years he has 
grasped the hammer and swung it ring- 
ing on the anvil. He began helping at 
his father's smithy in llammar, about 
fifty miles from Oslo, when he was only 
twelve; came to this country in 1891, 
and has been working at his present 
smithy for thirty-three years. Before 
that he lived In Boston, but he much 
prefers the tranquil pleasures of Carlisle. 
"In Boston," he says, "everybody rushes 
so. You would think they had not a 
minute to waste, i am always so glad 
to get home again." His house beside 
the smithy is bowered, English-fashion, 
in a riot of bright-colored flowers and 
over the way a fliie old while church:, 
facing him, tells the time from the 



steeple: — The 'smithy he~BeTie\ <■* 
a hundred years old, or more. He bought 
it from a Mr. Lee. wlto had it thirty-five 
years, dying at :he age of eighty, and his 
predecessor, named Scott, had had It for 
a long time. too. The ceiling beams are 
wooden-pegged, and the sooty old floor- 
boards are made hummocky by big 
which many footsteps cannot wear down. 

Mr. Otterson's shop (with the inevl- ( 
table gasoline pumps outside the door, 
and a sign "Otterson's Billing Station'' 
resting negligently on the ground) is a 
pleasant blackish place, hot because the 
small-paned windows aren't open, 
cluttered with odd and prettj 
fire sets, candelabra and so on. finished 
or In process, but the pride of his 
are two quite large silver cups in his 
cottage. He has a tiny cup. too. that 
he won in 1891 for his pari in rowing an 
eight-oared shell at Lawrence and on the

BOSTON EVENING TRANSCRIPT.

Carlisle Village Blacksmith 

Gains Attention of Boston 

Transcript 

Many Concord folk, particularly those 
who often drive on a pleasant evening 
through Carlisle via Lowell Road and 
Monument Street, greatly enjoyed read- 
ing in the Boston Evening Transcript 
of August 10th an interesting article 
about Mr. Ingvald L, Otterson of Car- 
lisle the Smithy, who about seven years 
ago 'turned to the making of articles 
in wrought iron. 

For those who may not have seen 
the article we are happy to quote from 
it as there is much of interest about 
Mr Otterson before he took up making 
fascinating objects of wrought iron. 
Of his work the Transcript says,— his 
ducks . . . "are admirable, and so are 
thirling-irons which you scrape up and 
down on a handle to make a vigorous 
clatter, in place of using a door- 
knocker. Candelabra and delicate 
flower stands are where the old crafts- 
man excels. He has a book of sketches 
from which he copies, but his best 
work he designs as he goes along, 
hammering the metal into a pretty 
spiral and placing a candle-cup at just 
the right place to give a vinely effect." 
Lately, he has taken pupils. "They 
are wealthy people who summer near- 
by for the rest which the country side 
affords. They learn the tricks quite 
fast, making andirons and matching 
fire-sets mostly, to take home to an 
admiring household: Mr. Otterson 
delves little into their personal back- 
grounds. . . . They both like wrought- 
iron, and that's enough." 

Two interesting drawings accompany 
the article; one of the smithy "set in 
grass and flowers", the other, a charac- 
teristic profile view of Mr. Otterson. 
whom the writer classifies as a 
"Skating Blacksmith from Norway". It 
seems. that "he began helping at his 
father's smithy in Hammar, about fifty 
miles from Oslo when he was only 
twelve; came to this country in 1891, 
and has been working at his present 
smithy for thirty-three years. Before 
that he lived in Boston." 

While the "city folks" of Carlisle 
praise his skill, his chief pride are two 
silver cups in his possession. 

"In Norway Mr. Otterson lived on a 
hundred mile long lake, where, in addi- 
tion to rowing, he skated and ice- 
boated. In 1890 he went to an inter- 
national skating meet at Stockholm, 
entered at short notice the race for 
those carrying military equipment 



(sixty-five pounds including pack and 
a gun) and won, in the incredible time 
of 7.12 4-5 for two English miles. A 
heavily decorated cup attests to this. 
At the same meet he came in second 
in the mile race, in 2.55 3-5. This cup 
he likes even better; it is hand-made, 
with the distinctive simplicity of Swed- 
ish handicraft, faintly engraved, 
adorned with an exquisite coat-of- 
arms, bold lined and with the maker's 
mark on the botton. Both of these 
were presented by the Crown Prince, 
now King Oscar." 

This quiet, gentle mannered man, 
working in the old smithy, which he 
believes to be one hundred years old 
or more, sells many of the interesting- 
productions to tourists, some going as 
far away as Texas.

The Orchestras of October 



(Dedicated to Warren H. Blaisdell, 19 Lamb St., Lowell, Mass.) 

The trees are making: music in the land, 
A rainbow music, soundless and sublime; 
'Midst their chromatic melody I stand 
And worship, at this bright, autumnal time. 
I hear October's orchestras now play 
A radiant and living symphony: 
This is the month of music, let me say. 
With strains that never were on land or sea. 

There is a venerated friend of mine 
Whose age has reached the autumn of its year; 
In him Christ's graces colorfully shine, 
And make a Christmas music, rich and clear. 
A spiritual October does he know, 
When lovely tunes, melodious beauties, glow. 
—REV. E. WAYNE STAHL.
